Nothing brings people together like high school football.
The tradition. The passion. The electricity in the air on an autumn Friday night. For these teams and the communities that rally around them, football is more than a game. It’s a magnetic force that captures the imagination of students, families and towns while unifying them in exceptional ways and transcending societal differences. To better share these inspiring stories, USA Football has launched PowerofFootball.org.[youtube video=”RPS8YkoNcps”]
